Review: It's a nice field with a variety of game modes which will keep you interested and excited. I really like the ghost town because of the CQC feel and it gets pretty intense. The pro shop is nice, clean and employees were helpful and knowledgeable. I plan on coming back to this field since I found out it's real close to my parents restaurant (Orchid of Hawaii). There are some things I'm concerned about but could be easily fixed

Safety Issues

**Chrono Regulation **
The first time i went there, I did not see any official stationed at the chrono area. 280 FPS is the max but when I went to chrono my gun, I had to ask another player what the limit was. Unlike Friendly Fire and Canobie, self equipped players are marked (colored ziptie) showing it is chronoed and approved by an official to prevent shooting "Hot." Basically anyone could go about, shoot real hot and injure players. Though, the players there were honest and played by the rules but anyone could shoot hot until someone brings it up which isnt safe at all.
I suggest having an official present in the chrono area and some kind of indication that the guns are safe.

**Ghost town Ramp**
When I came, it was sunny but the fields was still wet by the snow melting away. When we were brought to Ghost town, the ramps leading to the 2nd floor staging area was still wet and players were literally slipping and falling. Even holding on to the railings was tough enough. Players lost good paint and this happened to at least 4 players.
I suggest installing some rough material on the ramp because it was pretty dangerous, anyone would run, slip and hit their head *knock on wood*

Besides these two safety issues, everything else was kept in check as in barrel sleeve, mask on, no blind firing, and checking hoppers for crappy paint


Minor Issues

**Dead Man don't talk**
Other fields I've been to reinforce this specific rule since it is considered cheating but during the safety briefs, none of the officials said anything about it. During the spool field game, dead players on the sidelines were screaming to their teammates giving intel. This happened quite some time but later on the day, I think different official was there and when it happened again, he turned around and said no talking when dead.
